Genital warts are caused by the HPV virus (human papillomavirus). Fast, effective treatment is available at Broadgate GP’s walk in STD clinic London Wall.
Much of the publicity and information about the HPV virus focuses on women because it is a prime cause of cervical cancer. But this same virus also causes genital warts in both men and women; an STD that is now endemic here in the UK.
Statistics on genital warts for 2013
According to the government’s medical statistics on the incidence of STD infections here in the UK, in the year 2013, 40,796 men were diagnosed with genital warts, and 32,613 women. In men, the medical name of this infection is Condyloma, or Penile/Venereal Warts.
There are two types of Thrush, or to be more accurate, it’s the same infection, but can affect different parts of the body. You can contract a Thrush infection in the throat (Oral Thrush), or you can contract an infection in the genital area. Here at Broadgate Clinic London Wall, women often use our walk in sexual health screening services for cases of Vaginal Thrush. Genital Thrush can be contracted by both men and women, but when women are infected, it is often referred to as Vaginal Thrush, or Bacterial Thrush. The base cause of Thrush (whether oral or genital) is a yeast known as Candida Albicans; in fact the medical name for Thrush is Candidiasis.
